Monday already and a new bear...............

On Saturday we decided that we needed an outing so headed off to Ely with two stops on the way. The village of Haddenham is home to a bead shop which I had not yet had an opportunity to visit. It is well stocked with a large selection of beads but did not have the bezels which I wanted to use with resin. Looks like it will be back to on line shopping to find what I want but I was well controlled, not being tempted to add to my large stock of beads.
Our next stop was at Soham, home to an amazing scrapbooking warehouse. We spent a quite some time there whilst Bronwen investigated the entire store but we did find some really nice trimmings to use with the bears . These little spools of braid were a bargain, reduced to half price, lots of uses for the braid as well as the little wooden spools.

The weather was fine but extremely cold. Fortunately in Ely we found an excellent warm little cafe for lunch before visiting the street market and many charity shops.
I have managed to complete a new bear, still have five sitting waiting to be decorated and several all stitched up and waiting to be filled. This week it will be no going anywhere as lots of work to do. The on line show is looming just after Hugglets so really need to get working.

This is my latest little girl with shoes. Annabeth is wearing shades of pale blue and yellow, looks all ready for spring and is now listed on e-bay.
